1 Cocktail + 5 robust wines to taste + 4 authentic Mexican dishes (our favorite!)

Aficionados crave authentic Mexican cuisine: rare outside the colorful country itself, yet renowned among the initiated for vibrant, bold, complex rustic flavors. Don’t think jalapeno poppers, piled-up fajitas or strangely filled burritos. Imagine rather the balanced richness proper fresh guacamole, tomato-y tang of prawns vercruzana, earthy chile-chocolatey-ness of long-simmered mole negro (yes, ingredients include chocolate) or the zesty limey lift of a 3-ingredient premium Margarita cocktail (kein sweet-and-sour mix, blech!)... all new experiences.

And you won’t believe how swimmingly well those bright and rustic Mexican flavors fare when painted on a palate of diverse world wines from Spain to France to Chile and more. No olvides, prometo (you won't forget it, we promise)!

Not a lecture, rather a nice mix of eating, drinking, chatting and learning.


1 Cocktail + 5 repräsentative Weine zur Degustation + 4 authentische mexikanische Gerichte (unser Favorit!)

Aficionados machen hungrig auf authentische mexikanische Küche: dünn gesäht ausserhalb des würzigen- farbenfrohen Landes jedoch sehr bekannt wegen seiner prägnanten, feurigen Würzigkeit hindurch aller Speisen. Nein, denke nicht an aufgefäufte Stapel von Fajitas oder mit Allerlei gefüllte Burritos. Versetze dich in frische Guacamole, Tomaten-y tang Garnelen Vercruzana, erdig Chile-schokoladig, lange geköchelte mole negro (ja, die Zutaten enthalten auch Schokolade) oder Limettenzesten, die zum premium Margarita Cocktail locken (kein sweet-and-sour mix, blech!)... alles neue Erfahrungen.

Du wirst staunen, wie sich die Aromen und Düfte im pikanten mexikanischen Essen am Gaumen ausbreiten, in Kombination mit mundigen, passenden Weinen von Spanien bis Frankreich und bis nach Chile vereinen. No olvides, prometo (es wird unvergesslich, wir versprechen es)!

Wir drücken an diesem Abend nicht die Schulbank und dozieren aus dem Buch, vielmehr führen wir dich in eine Welt von Speisen, passenden Getränken, spannenden Gesprächen und natürlich einem hohen Lerneffekt.

I loved the event

Hey guys, this is Jaime, thanks for having us, it was great, the food was fantastic and thanks a lot for the copia!
I believe that we only missed a bit more of people rotation, the setup with the table makes you sort of stay in your table, but probably it was only this group?…and I think it would be a good idea that the first wine serving is either done by you guys, or shown how much we should pour…the guys in our table did not understand the concept and started really strong…I know is sort of babysitting but specially with guys groups probably is needed...

Loved it!

Thanks so much for hosting such a great event! It was my first one and I'll definitely be back!

I especially loved the chicken mole dish and the Negroamaro di Salento "Mavrio". =)

Thanks again and it was lovely to meet you both!
